We're delighted to present a second release from Finnish graphic artist and musician Flutterspot, following the 'Labmat EP' back in early 2006, and this time round, 'Suitable For A Desire To Share' is almost 40 minutes of lushly layered electronic music to die for - or at least freeze a little bit.
We start off with the oddly titled 'Small, Brightly Coloured, Highly Arboreal', which hops up into the trees for some almost Boards Of Canada-esque loping beats and marvellously complex electronic beats. From there on, there's just all kinds of mature fun to be had, with 'Cumulonimbus Arcus' looping all over the place in delight.
What else? Blimey, 'A Minor Lovesong' is all guitars and style and 'Hover In Mid-Air' is semi-ambient bliss, and this all adds up to one of the most accomplished Monotonik releases we've had in some time - so everyone say thank you to the mysterious Flutterspot, eh?
1 - Small, brightly coloured, highly arboreal

I used the song "Alignments of Heartal Points" in my film, "Plastic Face Paper Glasses" recently: http://vimeo.com/15072689
I really like this. Nice work!

Sounds from the back corners of your mind...
The art of Dave McKean bears a few similiarities to this album... scraps of old imagery, some dark, some blurry- different colors, sizes, and shades...
All with a sense of mystery- yet a lingering familiarity prevails throughout-- reminding of things once known or dreamed-- And dream is the key here--a fleeting thought, right at the edge of your consciousness, that shimmers and then vanishes... the sort of thing that burns dimly in your brain upon waking. The thing you just experienced in slumber but now cannot remember as you pour your morning coffee.
The songs are beautiful and abstract- I've been listening to this album on/off for several years now-- something finally urged me to convey these thoughts to the world- and also to thank Sir Flutterspot for sharing it with us!
"Cumulonimbus Arcus" is sooooooo good... I definately love this stuff!
